Publication TypeResearch ReportAbstractThe primary purpose of this study is to assist West Arnhem Regional Council (WARC) to improve and develop targeted waste management strategies. As the first study of this kind to focus on very remote areas of the Northern Territory, this project provides insights into the current policy environment and practices for waste management, and the barriers and challenges associated with managing waste. It provides an evidence base that can be shared with other regional councils when planning their strategic waste options. The study also aims to identify potential options for managing community waste flows in ways that support the circular economy.
Information for this report was collected through interviews with various members of WARC staff responsible for managing the landfill sites in 5 communities. In addition, WARC provided a summary of current volumes of waste stockpiled at each community, including legacy waste areas. Further information was gathered through conversations with recycling and transport logistic companies operating in the Top End.AuthorMathur, D.Norris, E.DateJune, 2022Publication CollectionNorthern Institute Research ReportsKeywordWaste managementWest Arnhem
